comparing to mine, the only difference seems to be
that i do not have a "U:[username]" in the .db file
looks like that info might be encrypted

was the .db file something you restored from backup?
try the "makemap hash /etc/mail/authinfo < /etc/mail/authinfo"
and see if it will authenticate

KODON,
Yes I did some copying but when I did a makemap on [authinfo] it still won't authenticate.
And I still see [user name] in [authinfo.db].
Ya know I did not see any errors when I compiled, do those errors show up at the end? or do I have to watch the whizzing by of info to see if there was an error?
By end I mean the end of a given step.

Kodon & Siegex,
I did one step above that, I re-installed the whole OS.
Now I'm trying to compile [cyrus-sasl] but it's NOT creating "/var/state/saslauthd" or "/usr/local/lib/sasl2" after I install. I've tried Skubee's option by changing the compiling arguments to "/var/state" and "/usr/local/lib" still nothing after install.
Of-course I tried the original example letter for letter first.
Do you guys have any idea why or what's going on????????????????
I'm trying my third recompile and install now just to make quadruple sure every detail again.....
Let me know if you have any ideas, please.

Wolfy

Kodon,
Errors?!?!?!? If they appear at the end of compiling or the end of making, then NO.
If they appear during those processes I didn't see it, but I did not scroll back through every step either.

As far as /var/state/saslauthd and /usr/local/lib/sasl2 they never get created.
I've uninstalled, deleted everything and unpacked the tar.gz file re-compiled and installed about six times now with different variations and nothing is working.
Any Ideas???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Wolfy

***************** EDIT 9/18/04@9:38pm PST ********************

Kodon,
After my seventh install, I do see a /usr/lib/sasl2 directory and I see only a /usr/sbin/saslauthd file no directory.
Does that make any sense or help?????????????????

Wolfy

that is all i have on mine after compiling

and when you did
/usr/sbin/sendmail -d0.1 -bv root
you did or did not see STARTTLS and SASLv2?

what has me kinda wondering
is when i went through the how-to
(skipping the backup and restore part
cause i was doing a fresh install)
i received an error and had to do some searching
to determine how to continue
believe it was an m4 error

Kodon,
Okay we are making progress finally.
I am able to send from the server after everything.
But unable from outside the network.
I get the following error message from OE within WINXP.

The server does not support a SSL connection. Account: 'rainland.homelinux.com', Server: 'rainland.homelinux.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '250 HELP', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 250, Error Number: 0x800CCC7D

NOTE: I was unable to start shadow, due, full or in part by the fact that there is no /var/state/saslauthd directory. [ or so I believe ].

clarification

are you setting up client-side, server-side, or both?
all of my responses have been regarding client-side...
for server-side functionality i would have to defer to
more advanced users of sendmail

a quick search produced this


Do you get an error message like The server does not support a SSL connection.
Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '250 HELP', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 250, Error Number: 0x800CCC7D?

If so, untick the "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)" option on the "Advanced" tab of your mail server properties.

Kodon,
Yes I did uncheck that box.
Then I get this message:

The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'nekochung@netscape.net'. Subject 'test', Account: 'rainland.homelinux.com', Server: 'rainland.homelinux.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 5.7.1 <nekochung@netscape.net>... Relaying denied', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

Any Ideas???????
I will try to mess with it some more and see.

Wow, you guys sure do talk alot, I just got the email right now that there was a reply to my post only to see like 10 replies

Anyway here is your problem, and unfortunatly it was before you reinstalled the OS

Code:
Sep 17 17:34:37 rainland sm-mta[5232]: i8I0YaZW005230: AUTH=client, available mechanisms do not fulfill requirements
Whatever client you are trying to use, is trying to login using the mechnisim "client" whatever that is, we setup sasl to only support LOGIN and PLAIN.

Thank you to SiegeX and Kodon,
I thank you for your efforts, but I seem to not be getting the information I need.
I purchased today (9-19-04) "The sendmail cookbook" by "Craig Hunt" distributed by "O'Reilly".
i.e. one of the "BAT BOOKS" I when finances permit will buying the complete "Sendmail book" by the same author
and publisher.
At such time I will be in a position to clarify the implantation of sendmail in both a client and server application.
Which I will provide to viewers of this post and Linuxquestion.org.

Thanks again for all your help.

Wolfy
